Specialties

Dr. Joseph M Guenther Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgical Oncology

    Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
    Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Best Doctor I have ever been to

This doctor instantly made me feel I was going to be ok even after telling me I had breast cancer that was so large I might need a mastectomy. I knew I was going to be ok & it kept me on a positive attitude. You don't get this with many doctors. Luckily, he was involved with a clinical trial that reduced my tumor enough to save my breast. I feel he was a gift from God and he remembers details about you even 5 years after initial contact-Excellent skill level and the incision was done in such a way as to minimize deformity of the remaining breast tissue. Consider him before anyone else.

Best Surgeon Ever

Dr Guenther is the best surgeon ever. Back in 2007 he did a cancer surgery on me taking out the tail of my pancreas, and spleen. He did thyroid surgery, hernia surgery, liver surgery, and I had MRSA and he pulled me through it. He is a very kind giving, caring, understanding, I can't say enough about him. He has brought me through hard complicating situations. He is my Angel . The BEST
